"She uses extended playing techniques imaginatively and expressively in a vibrant and evocative pop-influenced tonal language."

FAQs


I love some of your pieces, but its not for my instrument. Can I arrange it for my needs?
I'm glad you love our music enough to want to adapt it for your needs, and thanks for asking, but I prefer to do that myself. Anytime you are going to change the structure or instrumentation you legally need the composer's and publisher's permission. Reach out to me, let's see what I can do!

I'd like to commission you. How do I do that?
This is my FAVORITE question! Shoot me an email and we'll begin discussions about parameters of the piece (length, instrumentation, theme, fee, etc). Once we hash out all the details, I will send you a contract. Once we agree with everything on the contract, we'll both sign. Typically, I ask for half of the fee at contract signing and the other half when I deliver the piece. Your involvement in the development of the piece depends on you. Some people like to get multiple updates throughout the process, and sometimes I want that if its an instrument/ensemble I don't get to write for often. Some people are more hands off. Its up to you!

What is your commission rate?
There's many factors that go into determining how much I charge to compose a piece: instrumentation, length of piece, delivery date, and my availability. Email me about what you are looking for and we can go from there. I never take offense if financially its not feasible. If I've got lots of time on my hands and/or its something on my bucket list of things to write - I will be open to a friendly negotiation. It never hurts to ask!

I want to record a piece for my album! Can I do that?
You're in luck! Since I self-publish, I am the person to talk to about that. You will need to secure a mechanical or streaming license from me. These tend to be rather inexpensive, but necessary to secure the paperwork for you record label and streaming services. Let's talk.

I'm performing your piece! Do you care?
YES!!! And thanks for letting me know! That's my favorite part about the composition process. Let me know the specifics of the performance (date, time, place, etc), and I will put it on my Calendar. It I am geographically close and not committed elsewhere I will even show up!
